Reyn Kinzey-2.png

In all my poems, I try to tell stories, and as Joan Didion famously said, "We tell ourselves stories in order to live. At least for awhile."

Reyn's latest book is now available on Amazon
Choosing Ireland

I’m a typical American-British mutt.

With my DNA, I could easily choose any home country to call my motherland: England, Wales, Ireland. I could probably scare up a Scottish ancestor if I needed to. My name is Welsh; my mother’s family, English. So, I felt free to choose.

But it was always Ireland for me. I hope, as you read these poems and enjoy the photographs by Rebecca Day that accompany them, you'll share my love of my spiritual second home.

Thanks for stopping by.


Sleeping Dragons

But the dragons merely sleep.

Dragons live forever.

One day, they'll awake

and there'll be a reckoning.

A collection of thought-provoking poems and autobiographical tales that remind the reader of the transitory nature of life. Beautiful works complemented by beautiful photography. A calming read for a quiet Sunday morning.

Amazon Review

Chasing the Dragon

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rugby Playing Irish Poet

Review on Amazon


I learned a lot about Reyn during a poetry reading at a medium size venue. His reading shined amid the dozen or so very accomplished poets there. I have read his collection of poetry in Chasing the Dragon, that is an accumulation of over a quarter century. He writes truth and in some cases that requires explicit language, but that makes it powerful and most of all honest. His subjects are true-to-life and include: Civil war, river tides, a bird named Maddie, a mother dying, Ireland, Rugby, death, active love-making, an Irish pub, "Have a pint". One stanza that struck me is: "Worlds die when memories die". Profound! I am not the World's best poetry critic, but his work is amazing. The words jumped off the page as if they were spoken instead of just read!
